TEXT: EPHESIANS 5:1-8
Youths are prone to deception because of their inquisitive and exploratory nature some gamble away their souls by entertaining seemingly harmless but soul destructive debates and arguments presented by classmates, colleagues, friends and teachers. Others seek new definitions and answers to questions that alienate them from God. Today, many places of worship teach heresies that deceive young minds. Christian youths should be cautious and reject deception in its entirety.
Our text warns against deception with vain words which incurs the wrath of God. Beloved, do not be in haste to accept attractive and lofty ideas. There may be hidden traps to destroy your faith and damn your soul forever. Watch out against deceit and errors. Remain steadfast in faith, cling to God’s word, pray without ceasing, witness for Christ by your words and deeds and fellowship with God’s people. Remain faithful to God and surely you will not fall prey to damning deception and heresies.
QUOTE: Watch out against deceit and errors
CHALLENGE: Reject every form of deception.
PRAYER: Help me Lord, to be steadfast and uncompromising in faith.
